condition

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
"Death? Why this fuss about death? Use your imagination, try to visualize a world without death! Death is the essential condition of life, not an evil.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Equality, in a social sense, may be divided into that of condition and that of rights. Equality of condition is incompatible with civilization, and is found only to exist in those communities that are but slightly removed from the savage state. In practice, it can only mean a common misery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the easy life of the gods would be a lifeless life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Culture, then, is a study of perfection, and perfection which insists on becoming something rather than in having something, in an inward condition of the mind and spirit, not in an outward set of circumstances.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No sex, age, or condition is above or below the absolute necessity of modesty; but without it one vastly beneath the rank of man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the paradox of life that the way to miss pleasure is to seek it first. The very first condition of lasting happiness is that a life should be full of purpose, aiming at something outside self.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nobody in TV makes as much money as Robert Redford, who likes to make movies for several million dollars only on the condition that they contain some sort of social message. I cannot take very seriously a social message delivered by an actor who is paid nine million dollars to deliver it, and who charges you five dollars to see it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I reached in experience the nirvana which is unborn, unrivalled, secure from attachment, undecaying and unstained. This condition is indeed reached by me which is deep, difficult to see, difficult to understand, tranquil, excellent, beyond the reach of mere logic, subtle, and to be realized only by the wise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together by the tie of sympathy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The condition every art requires is, not so much freedom from restriction, as freedom from adulteration and from the intrusion of foreign matter.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is wrong to be harsh with the New York critics, unless one admits in the same breath that it is a condition of their existence that they should write entertainingly about something which is rarely worth writing about at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man receives the full culture of a man in whom the sensibility to the beautiful is not cherished; and there is no condition of life from which it should be excluded. Of all luxuries this is the cheapest, and the most at hand, and most important to those conditions where coarse labor tends to give grossness to the mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any work that aspires, however humbly, to the condition of art should carry its justification in every line.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real object of education is to have a man in the condition of continually asking questions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The personal appropriation of clichs is a condition for the spread of cultural tourism.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The fundamental impulse of the movement is neither masturbatory nor concretely lesbian -- although it of course offers warm house to both these possibilities; it is an impulse to maidenhood -- to that condition in which a woman might pretend to a false fear or loathing of the penis in order to escape from any responsibility for the pleasure and well-being of the man who possesses it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There seems to be no stopping drug frenzy once it takes hold of a nation. What starts with an innocuous HUGS, NOT DRUGS bumper sticker soon leads to wild talk of shooting dealers and making urine tests a condition for employment -- anywhere.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If men were equally at risk from this condition -- if they knew their bellies might swell as if they were suffering from end-stage cirrhosis, that they would have to go nearly a year without a stiff drink, a cigarette, or even an aspirin, that they would be subject to fainting spells and unable to fight their way onto commuter trains -- then I am sure that pregnancy would be classified as a sexually transmitted disease and abortions would be no more controversial than emergency appendectomies.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The will to conquer is the first condition of victory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
History suggests that capitalism is a necessary condition for political freedom. Clearly it is not a sufficient condition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No theory is good unless it permits, not rest, but the greatest work. No theory is good except on condition that one use it to go on beyond.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mothers born on relief have their babies on relief. Nothingness, truly, seems to be the condition of these New York people. They are nomads going from one rooming house to another, looking for a toilet that functions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The courage of the truth is the first condition of philosophic study.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is a condition of mind, and the best way to secure it is to breed it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The power to guess the unseen from the seen, to trace the implications of things, to judge the whole piece by the pattern, the condition of feeling life in general so completely that you are well on your way to knowing any particular corner of it --this cluster of gifts may almost be said to constitute experience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man is much regarded by the rest of the world. He that considers how little he dwells upon the condition of others, will learn how little the attention of others is attracted by himself. While we see multitudes passing before us, of whom perhaps not one appears to deserve our notice or excites our sympathy, we should remember, that we likewise are lost in the same throng, that the eye which happens to glance upon us is turned in a moment on him that follows us, and that the utmost which we can reasonably hope or fear is to fill a vacant hour with prattle, and be forgotten.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If any of us hopes to survive, s/he must meet the extremity of the American female condition with immediate and political response. The thoroughly destructive and indefensible subjugation of the majority of Americans cannot continue except at the peril of the entire body politic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No one that ever lived has ever had enough power, prestige, or knowledge to overcome the basic condition of all life -- you win some and you lose some.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The essential part of our being can only survive if the transient part dissolves. Death is a condition of survival. That which has been gained must be eternalized, and can only be eternalized by being transmuted, by passing through death they must returnMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no such condition as schizophrenia, but the label is a social fact and the social fact a political event.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Food probably has a very great influence on the condition of men. Wine exercises a more visible influence, food does it more slowly but perhaps just as surely. Who knows if a well-prepared soup was not responsible for the pneumatic pump or a poor one for a war?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Peace of mind is that mental condition in which you have accepted the worst.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities. It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If a test of civilization be sought, none can be so sure as the condition of that half of society over which the other half has power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anger itself does more harm than the condition which aroused anger.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The man who is forever disturbed about the condition of humanity either has no problems of his own or has refused to face them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Though the practice of chivalry fell even more sadly short of its theoretic standard than practice generally falls below theory, it remains one of the most precious monuments of the moral history of our race, as a remarkable instance of a concerted and organized attempt by a most disorganized and distracted society, to raise up and carry into practice a moral ideal greatly in advance of its social condition and institutions; so much so as to have been completely frustrated in the main object, yet never entirely inefficacious, and which has left a most sensible, and for the most part a highly valuable impress on the ideas and feelings of all subsequent times.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man is born to seek power, yet his actual condition makes him a slave to the power of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The city is a fact in nature, like a cave, a run of mackerel or an ant-heap. But it is also a conscious work of art, and it holds within its communal framework many simpler and more personal forms of art. Mind takes form in the city; and in turn, urban forms condition mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Providence has nothing good or high in store for one who does not resolutely aim at something high or good. A purpose is the eternal condition of success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When people grow gradually rich their requirements and standard of living expand in proportion, while their present-giving instincts often remain in the undeveloped condition of their earlier days. Something showy and not-too-expensive in a shop is their only conception of the ideal gift.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect reflection of your habitual thinking. Thought rules the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The lie is a condition of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
